Managing users when the Profiles application is installed

Managing users is easier if the Profiles application is installed and you accept the default configuration in which the Profiles directory service extension is used to retrieve data from the Profiles database instead of retrieving it from the LDAP directory. Starting with version 3, when you make changes to user status and data in the Profiles database, the changes are automatically propagated to the other application databases.

You can use one of the following methods to update user data in the Profiles database:
  • IBM® Tivoli® Security Integrator scripts
  • Profiles Administration APIs
  • Profiles administrative commands
